We live in a digital age where kids spend a lot of time online using social media, instant messaging, researching, shopping and more. While social media can be a powerful means of communication and information sharing, internet crimes and online bullying are increasing concerns. Children are being targeted by online predators at an alarming rate and cyberbullying is becoming increasingly more prevalent.
This presentation will highlight the challenges that social media presents and how online experiences may lead to victimization such as cyberbullying, sexting, solicitation and extortion. Attendees will receive information on what parents and professionals working with children can do to ensure children use the internet safely.
